Over the past five years, no other top 50 school has risen faster in the ranking than Robinson.

Robinson is the highest ranked school in Georgia, and is the among the top three highest ranked schools in the southeastern United States, along with the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Duke University.

The University of Texas at Dallas’ ranking is based upon faculty research published in 24 peer-reviewed research journals across business disciplines.
